Somewhere between the dim light of Black Friday and the gleaming screens of Cyber Monday sits the perfect balance between compelling and patient. No sales here – just a Bollinger’s prized, limited edition Bollinger B13 2013. A Blanc de Noirs stunner built on the seductive styling of Pinot Noir. With 92% Grand Cru fruit and 8% Premier Cru. This vintage beauty offers a glimpse of what stunning glory survived the tricky 2013 harvest. Rich and complex, ripe pear and fresh almonds lift the palate to an ethereal precision of acidity. Fresh peach, delicate red plum, candied lemon peel…this is too good to pass up. Buy a few bottles while they last. One for you, one for them, one for later.
“This 100% Pinot Noir is quite the surprise, as it shows a clearly bright side of Pinot in this late-ripening year. Citrus, orchard fruit, mint, crushed rocks and white pepper lend aromatic brilliance to a decidedly nervy, taut Blanc de Noirs.” – Antonio Gallon

James Suckling 95: “ For an 8-year-old Champagne, this is extremely vibrant, the red-fruit character from the Pinot Noir grape rather in the background. Quite a strict style with discreet lees creaminess. However, the ripeness and power mean that it isn’t austere. Feels bone-dry with a powerful, chalky finish. 100% Pinot Noir, 100% barrel-fermented, and 100% matured under cork.” – James Suckling
Decanter 93: “ 100% Pinot Noir from Grand Cru villages Verzenay (51%), Aÿ (25%), and the rest from Louvois, Mareuil, and Avenay. The bouquet is compellingly fresh and minty, complicated by notes of white fruit – notably pear and apple – and gentle spices, as well as a light touch of citrus. With aeration, elegant pastry notes come to the fore. On the palate, this is a structured, tension-filled but airborne Champagne with high acidity. A sign of the cool 2018 vintage. Although already thoroughly enjoyable, it should age well over the next 10 years.” – Decanter
Wine & Spirits Magazine 93: “This Pinot Noir Champagne is almost entirely grown in grand-cru villages, its nearly raw limestone power putting the savor of the earth on display. There’s berry fruit at the center of the wine, surrounded by jasmine notes and brisk, pithy acidity. The clean finish makes it lovely to drink now, while the structure bodes well for aging.” – Wine & Spirits Magazine
Wine Spectator 93: “A graceful Champagne, with a subtle, pleasing tension to the invigorating aromas and flavors of crème de cassis, baked pineapple, verbena, toast and crystallized honey as they ride the silky mousse. Ends with a mouthwatering, mineral- and spice-laced finish.”
